The Weeknd has become the first artist to have a song in the Top 10 of the Billboard Chart for a full year!
BLINDING LIGHTS was released in November 2019 and as it spent it’s 52nd consecutive week in the Top 10 it totally eclipsed the previous record holder, Post Malone’s tune CIRCLES, which managed an impressive 39 weeks.
Sales were given a further boost when The Weeknd featured BLINDING LIGHTS as the closing song of his much acclaimed performance at The Superbowl half-time show at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The song had already broken the record for the number of consecutive weeks in the Top 5 , notching up an impressive 43 weeks.
There is still one other Billboard record the song could have a good chance of beating. Imagine Dragons had RADIOACTIVE in the Top 100 for 87 weeks between 2012 and 2014, can The Weeknd outdo that?
It will be a while until we find out, but in the meantime forget the stats and immerse yourself in the music!
We have a radio station that features Abel Tesfaye and nothing else. ( that’s his real name, by the way)
